Cauliflower Pizza Crust
Cauliflower Pizza Crust is all the rage but if you don’t make it correctly, it can be a soggy disappointment. The goal is to have a nice crispy crust, not a limp, mushy mess. After much trial and error, we finally figured out the secret to the perfectly crispy Cauliflower Crust Pizza recipe!
When we say we have had plenty of trial and error, we mean it. We tried every suggestion we could find online. To give a cauliflower crust recipe the crispiness it needs, you have to get just about all the water content out of it.
- turkey bacon
- sugar-free pizza or marinara sauce
Ingredients Needed To Make Cauliflower Pizza
- head of cauliflower
- Italian Cheese
- Italian Seasoning
- garlic salt
- black pepper
- favorite pizza toppings
So after many failed attempts, we put our brains together and tried to think of a way to get all the water out of the cauliflower so we could get that deliciously crispy crust every pizza lover desires.
Many recipes suggest draining the cauliflower or squeezing the water content out with your hands. That didn’t work for us. We still found the cauliflower had too much water in it to bake up and therefore resulted in a soggy crust.
Suddenly, it dawned on us: the secret to the perfect (and easiest) Cauliflower Crust is to enlist the help of a JUICER!
Once you have your crispy crust, now you can top it with your favorite pizza toppings. May we suggest adding at least two vegetables? You could even use this crust in our recipe for vegetable pizza!
Produce Moms Tip: Let your kids pick the veggies that go on the pizza. The more involved they are with grocery shopping and cooking, the more likely they are to try new food items!

The Perfect Cauliflower Pizza Crust
- 1 head cauliflower
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup Italian cheese We love parmesan but it's your choice
- 1 tsp Italian seasoning
- 1 tsp garlic salt
- black pepper to taste
- Run raw cauliflower through your juicer. You will get a very dry & fine pulp which is the base of your crust. It should look similar to the pictures below.
- Mix cauliflower pulp with remaining ingredients.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Press crust mixture onto parchment & shape into a pizza round.
- Bake at 450 degrees until lightly browned, approximately 15 minutes.
- Remove from oven. Top your cauliflower crust with traditional pizza toppings. Reduce heat to 400 & bake pizza to desired doneness, usually 10-20 minutes more.
